A little playground etiquette is necessary now that we have a new play space for our church and school. What we ask is: play safe; after you are finished playing please hang tools back up and make the space look inviting for the next person; keep the gate closed; do your best to keep sand in the sandbox, dirt in the dirt boxes and garden plot, and please donít dump lots of sand or dirt into the water table. Have fun and be kind to each other, and letís enjoy our new play space together!
